Anti-abortion movement faces a cold reality

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

The weather had already gotten to Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., a co-chairman of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus. He was listed as a speaker but, Monahan said, was "stuck on a tarmac in Illinois."

Cantor blamed the "unbelievably cold temperatures" on the same culprit he blames for many of life's ills. He praised "advocates who don't mind enduring the worst weather Washington can throw at you, for the opportunity to change one heart."

So the weather was whipped up by Washington? For the anti-abortion marchers, this theory beat the alternative: that it was the wrath of an angry God.
